Miracle of the Season

My son chose to do some extra credit for his science class. The experiment was showing how crystals are formed. He chose to make a Star of David, but you can make snowflakes, or I think icicles would be beautiful.
What a great way to show the "miracle" of crystal formation with the miracles of the season. They are really beautiful and require very few ingredients. Make some with your kids tonight!
Making ornaments with the kids works for me!
For complete instructions go here :



  1. Can you keep the crystals for years or is a shot term thing?

  2. I think that they would stay for years.

  3. how beautiful! I even have Borax in my laundry room. I'm so on this :)
